p.s. I was surprised when I realized that my Macbook Pro 13" Retina i5 2.8GHZ (Mid 2014) runs Xcom2 so badly... :( not fair... I hope that in 2016 they start putting 4 cores (instead of 2) also in the 13" Retina just like in the current 15" Retinas...
One option is missing in your study:: "Texture Filtering" = Bilinear, Trilinear, Aniso 2x, Aniso 4x, Aniso 8x, Aniso 16x Note that it is a different setting from the already here investigated "Texture Detail". Please, complete this excellent and extremely useful work by adding a Benchmark Framerate comparison and "slider comparison screenshots" also for this one. Thanks for this information, it is helpful and amazing! Good Job!
